Sandbag Convoys roll out

Police vehicles lead and follow the Sandbag Convoys, indicating the seriousness of their mission.

There is something both reassuring and daunting about seeing the sandbag convoys. 

Reassuring because we know “Fargo’s got this.”  Fargo officials are seasoned vets of the Red River Valley floods–historically seasoned.

Daunting, because, “here we go again.”  KVLY responded with a piece called, “Red River Resilience Helps Reduce Flood Anxiety.”

Yes, we push through, as one of our kids in residential treatment in Fargo recently commented on an unusually “bad” day. We push through to help others, collaborate, solve problems and walk out victorious.

Sandbag convoys, Sandbag Central, loads of volunteers, neighbors pitching in–all these are ways we feel less alone.

There is ONE who knows before we do what will happen. God didn’t promise that we wouldn’t be without problems and trials, but He did promise He’d be with us–no matter what. 

“Be strong and courageous, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
